If you haven’t read it, please do. I like getting feedback – whatever the feedback is. It’s useful. As a writer, I don’t want to feel like I’m working in a vacuum. Writers rarely write for themselves (unless they are simply writing in a journal) – we write for an audience. Feedback from the audience is essential. How else are we to know where we went wrong or how to improve? How else do we know that we’re on the right track?
Sometimes, we have a pretty good sense of it – there’s a sort of magic that happens in that storytelling process when the world drops away and you’re in the story and it’s hard to know whether you are moving the plot along or the plot is moving you along – that is the true magic of the creative process. And sometimes, the feedback doesn’t matter because you feel so great about what’s happening.
But, in the end, writers write for readers and without readers – well….
So – read – pass the link on to friends who read – I appreciate it very much.
I’m thinking about posting a story every week.
In the meantime, a good two plus hour snowshoe today with Nicky on her rather wonderful property – a bit of steep uphill – a bit of downhill and lots and lots and lots of snow – and it’s still coming down. Whew!
